Sermon About Patience: Wait in God

Sermon About Patience Put Wait in Your Gait Acts 1

Are you waiting in the Spirit? What are you waiting for?

When we are in a relationship and intimate with God, we know how to deal with Him. But how do we go about doing this? The Bible tells us to 'pray in the Holy Spirit. This means that we are to pray for His guidance and for patience as we go through life's experiences. God will give us the patience we need to deal with the situations we face.

Unlike the worldly life of comfort and ease, the Christian life is filled with difficult challenges-Lk. 9:23;Acts 14:22; 2 Tim. 3:12

Among these challanges are:

  • A world of rigorous toil-Matt. 25:34-40; Mk. 16:15; I Cor. 15:58
  • Many grueling battles-I Tim. 6:12; 2 Tim. 2:3-4
  • Temptations to overcome-Jas. 1:12; I Pet. 2:11
  • Last, but not least, persecution from without as well as within-2 Tim. 3:12; I Pet. 4:12

The disciples felt that they were ready to go—not wait (Acts 1:1-5). How can you wait expectantly in the Spirit?

1. While you wait, witness (Acts 1:6-11).

We should witness to everyone until Israel is restored (1:6-8).

Christ’s last promise was to return to the Mt. of Olives (1:9-11).

During the days of Noah His patience was exercised-I Pet. 3:20

How are you testifying to what Jesus has done for you while you wait for his return?

We can do this by being patient when we are in difficult situations. This is how we fulfill the command to  have a good relationship with Him.

Surely no prophet surpassed Moses in the role of God’s spokesman-Ax. 3:22; Deut. 34:10. In Heb. 11:23-29 we are told-Vs. 27 says, “he endured”-he was steadfast

When others see us, we gain credibility and respect in the eyes and minds of others. Being patient also helps us to connect with others and build relationships trhough witness

2. While you wait, pray (Acts 1:12-26).

The believers gathered to pray (1:12-14).

Peter followed God’s leading to replace Judas with Matthias (1:15-26).

What does active waiting in prayer look like for you? Being patient in difficult situations shows true faith .

We can be patient when we need help and support in a particular area of our life. We can be patient when we need help in a relationship or when we need support in our career. When we are patient, we are able to see the pros and cons of our choices. When we are patient and wait for God's will to be done in our lives, we are able to make the right choices for ourselves and for others.

3. How can you wait expectantly in the Spirit?

We must be people who prioritize kindness and patience.

If we are not careful then we can allow negative circumstances and feelings to dominate our thoughts and actions.

Patience is the result of a good relationship with God. The Holy Spirit convicts us of our sin and of the ways of the Lord. The Holy Spirit also indwells us when we are born again. We are able to commune with God and understand His thoughts and plans. This allows us to have a good relationship with God. When we have a good relationship with God, we are patientes
